Opinion: Nabilah Naggayi Sempala tries to finesse the game again
At any point of time there is those Members of Parliament, those supposed representatives that jump between parties, affiliations and behind bigger-men. For just one reason, to save their own career, because its not like they got any chance on their own. They got to have someone bigger boosting their number and chances of success.
The biggest of these in the Republic is Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Kampala Woman MP Nabilah Naggayi Sempala. Who in midst of November 2015 within a weeks time, went from endorsing Amama Mbabazi and his TDA Presidential Flagbearer to a little week later show-up at nomination day as a FDC MP. Therefore, jumping between the loyalty to Amama and going back to Dr. Kizza Besigye. She got later fully nominated in early december 2015. But that has been with me ever since.
She showed the way she will finesse things for power and possibility to become an MP. Nabilah will use all avenues, as long as it benefits her. There are nothing she will not say. Just like earlier in this year, she said Besigye is done and has had his time. That’s why she has no issues now to wear the red beret and be People Power affiliate. That’s because it boost her chances for a third term as an MP. She doesn’t do it because she believes no. Than, she would jump back to FDC if that added the options next week.
Nabilah Naggayi Sempala isn’t the loyal type, she fishes for relevance and importance. To be apart of the most dominating force of the moment. If it is Amama, Besigye or Bobi Wine doesn’t matter, as long as she is with the right big-man. She just need the right leader and the leeching of that. As long as she needs, until election season is over and she can cash in the envelopes.
That is why the Kampala Woman MP is finenessing this game. She ensure the deck is stacked in her favour and for her taking. Not matter what slogan, what bargain or what possible cost. As long as she get to keep the fiefdom and the payouts she’s accustomed too.
We all know this is game played for 2021. Just like she toyed around with Amama in 2015. She did so, because she felt the Go-Forward and TDA was a viable choice for a new home. But she ditched that, when she understood she had done wrong. Even as she was incumbent on a same ticket from previous election.
Nabilah could been loyal and shown some ethical and political savvy, instead she is doing shoddy homework and hoping no-one is noticing. The MP thinks people are forgetful. Not like she has dropped a legislation worth anything in two terms, neither has she had a pet-project to prove her value. What she is just another empty suit, but a finessing one at that.
If there is a new star on block next month, that becomes more viable than Bobi Wine. She would go his way. If she thinks the DP Block or ANT works. She might join them. Nabilah does whatever as long as she get the outcome she needs. The principals, the loyalty or the politics doesn’t matter, as long as she gets the paper. Peace.
